The legislation that established the Oconee River Greenway Authority charges the Authority with the responsibility of establishing a series of unique parks along the Oconee River. The Authority board approved the following mission statement in 2002:
The President of Georgia Military College, the Mayor of Milledgeville, the Baldwin County Commission Chairman or his designee, the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Commissioner or his designee, the Georgia Forestry Commissioner or his designee, two members from the community of Baldwin County plus the county commission chairman of each county, as requested, that lies in the jurisdiction of the Oconee River Greenway Authority along with two community representatives (with qualifications) from each county.
